    I've contacted Becoming the Archetype about it (I think it was Jason Wisdom's email). I don't think anything would come of it, but if there are any other fans of the band, you could put it on their forums. Help tone down the 'WTFCREEPER' factor.

    I contacted the brother of Bitter's guitarist. The most underrated band ever could be on Rock Band possibly maybe!

    I doubt this would be very effective for bigger name bands, as they most likely won't care about me. Plus I'm sure Harmonix will do their share of marketing for the service. But I will get my friend's talented band to try and do it so thats good I guess.

    Source? :/


    I remember reading/watching HMX saying that they were wating with a song creator until they had something more functional than the GHWT failure of a music creator. Maybe this is it.

    I also wonder, how will they let artists charge money for this? And how much will the artists profit from the songs? And can the artists make charts without certain instruments? Will users have a limit of how many songs they can upload? How is this going to work out with licensing? :O

    I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE HOW THIS TURNS OUT!

    Theres no way An Endless Sporadic could be on RB. Drummer works at Neversoft.
    EVERY ONE email The Strokes to do RBN. Twice a...minute will be nice.

    I'm still wondering why my thread got moved, but this didn't, I follow the rules and Wow! Sham Wow works all the time, just kidding but really they didn't need to move it.

    I also emailed Roadrunner Records earlier today.
    I plan on contacting more bands next week, like Between the Buried and Me, and some local bands like Empire's Fate and Protest the Hero. My guitar teacher knows the guys from both bands, so hooking that up shouldn't be too hard.

    I just emailed Karl, webmaster and good friend of Weezer to see if they got anything going on.

    I'll try a couple local bands I know as well!

    EDIT: Also, the OP should post the list of what bands have been contacted in the first post so we can keep track.

    well, with all the excitement with the RBN, all i can say is: Guitar Hero, you have just been KO'd, please go away before you embarrass yourself.

    I'm surprised you guys haven't sent many e-mails straight to the smaller labels. Why go through each individual band when you can possibly get a label to ask many more if not all bands under their label.

    Wow, didn't expect this topic to take off like this! Good to see everyone's shooting out emails! :) I've sent to Riot and Bugs Henderson; gonna work on compiling a list to put in the first post.

    Edit: Noticed that a lot of people have told me that An Endless Sporadic's actually a Neversoft band...whoops >_< Oh well, I wouldn't rule them out entirely...Freezepop made it onto one of the DS Guitar Hero games, after all!

    I sent an email off to Vagrant Records. Tried to email Thrice, but it didn't go through. I'll try again later.

    Also, posted on the Celldweller facebook page. It looks like Klayton keeps an eye on that page. I think he'll see it soon.

    Also on Facebook, this should appear on my friends' news feeds: "encourages you to contact your favorite band and tell them about the Rock Band Network.

    I just asked the guy in charge of Bryan Adams, Michael Buble (why not?), and Bachman-Turner Overdrive. I have no idea what he'll be able to do, but maybe he'll contact a few people.

    Send links to the RBN Press Release and creators.rockband.com to the email address of the management and carefully explain why the band should pursue getting content delivered via RBN without sounding desperate.
